I am curious to see if anyone is a property inspector as well as a real estate investor. I was wondering on how it has been trying to do both and if you do both what type of Real estate investing do you partake in and why? To me it seems like a good entry into investing with learning what to look at before purchasing a property as well as networking with the individuals in the area.
A little background information on me- I have no investment properties at the time and have been trying to thoroughly educate myself before diving in. Im interested in PM the first couple of properties as well as utilizing the BRRRR strategy for my first property. I am in the military currently, my wife and I are looking to move from Southern California when I finish my enlistment at the end of next year. Any and all information is welcome and thank you so much in advance! I hope you are all well and safe!
@cordell being an property inspector is a great tool to have, but not necessary to be an investor.
I have 3 single family homes. I have done the following:
- Read every real estate book I can put my hands on.
-Subscribed to real estate youtubers.
-Check the MLS every day analyzing deals as if I were going to purchase them.
-I did many walk throughs to get familiar with what to look at and the terminology.
-I spent a year researching, reading and planning before I purchase my first deal.
This was my strategy to get started into real estate. There is no right or wrong way to get started. However, analysis paralysis. Best of luck!!!
